What are the eligibility criteria for countries to be part of the ETA-IL program?

The ETA-IL is a visa-waiver program that intends to regulate the influx of tourists without the need for a lengthy, formal visa application process. As such, the countries which meet the criteria to be put on the ETA-IL list are those which have already been granted visa-free access to Israel.

Many factors determine whether a country will be considered for visa-free entry. The government must be assured that there is a low risk of security threats coming from visiting citizens of the said nation, so positive diplomatic relations with Israel are a base requirement.

New countries will most likely be added to the Israeli evisa program as new diplomatic ties are forged. For example, the UAE was added to the list a year after the strengthening of the relationship between the two countries under the 2020 Abraham Accords.

Once on the ETA for Israel list, countries are expected to stay there. Only in extremely rare cases is visa-free entry rescinded by Israel.
